Feeling Worthless

Postby Geek » May 17th, 2013, 5:59 am

I'm feeling unsuccessful at the moment. I've been out of work sick a lot lately, and I'm feeling guilty over it. While I was out yesterday, one of my projects didn't go as planned. I'm feeling pretty useless, that I'm not contributing to the workplace like I should. I had a procure yesterday, so maybe it's the meds they used on me interacting with my normal meds.

Thanks for listening.

Hi Geek,

In my opinion, guilt is a useless feeling. If you are sick, you need to rest. There's nothing to feel guilty about getting what you need.
About your project, there's a saying in Spanish "No hay mal que por bien no venga." Which roughly translates to: there's no bad thing that doesn't come for a good reason. Sorry for the really bad translation, but I hope you get the picture.
Don't be so hard on yourself. Your worth has nothing to do with your performance. You are worthy no matter what.

Thank you for your replies, it makes me feel better to know I'm not crazy. Lately, things have been just piling up, and it's like I just need to slow down, but I can't. My meds were decreased, so the racing thoughts are back along with the attention issues. I'm hoping to up my meds soon, but I haven't received a call back from the pdoc yet.
